Take the front drive shaft off, and see if the noise goes away. The clicking may be in the u joint.

im not in a place where i can take it off. i live on campus at my school and we cant do automotive work here. if it is the ujoint, how much is it typically to have them replaced?

I would then go to a garage for an estimate; it may be something else, and they will be able to put it up in the air to check out.

A u joint at the Dealer would be about $100, for the part and 2 hours labor; at a local garage the labor rate would be cheaper, and an aftermarket u joint would be around $35-$50
